Dear Andrew

 

What a lovely idea! The Family Centre (Deaf Children) supports families of children with all types of hearing loss but we don’t get involved in the educational side of things.  I would suggest that you contact some local schools for deaf children who would be better placed to give you feedback and I am listing some below. (Email addresses can be  found on their websites):

 

Elmfield School for Deaf Children (Primary Department)

 

Hearing Impairment Resource Bases are in the following mainstream schools:

 

Mendip Green Infant School, Weston-Super-Mare

Woodlands Primary School, Yate

W.A.S.P.S Primary School, Bath

New Oak Primary School, Bristol

Henbury Court Primary School, Bristol

 

Good luck with your research.

 

Kind regards
